Information campaign on waste management system in Kaliningrad
Detailed description of the Good Practice
Within the framework of EU INTERREG project ”JOCCOW – joint capacity concerning waste management” leaflet was published to be distributed among Kaliningrad City residents. The leaflet contains information on annual amount of waste generated by one city inhabitant, on the cost of waste transportation to solid waste landfill for deposing, the information on permanently growing tariffs on waste transportation related to the long period of the landfill maintenance, located in the village named after A. Kosmodemjansky and annual increased of landfilled waste. There is also a description of approaches to diminish the volume of plastic bottles and tetra pack which can be used by anyone at home which will decrease sufficiently the cost of waste transportation.
The choice of the village named after A. Kosmodemjansky as a place of dissemination was de-termined by the fact that the majority of houses in the village are one-family houses and high-rise dwelling houses. This fact is of great importance as presently each owner of one-family house should make a contract on waste disposal with transport company, the contract pre-scribes the actual amount of waste generated, while the owner of a flat in high-rise residential house pays particular tariff on using refuse chute and waste containers. That is why the knowl-edge of the main principles how to diminish the volumes of some types of waste will allow the owners of one-family houses decreasing the costs for waste disposal and will let to decreasing the volumes of waste landfilled.
The representatives of the Municipal Institution Ecological Center “EKAT-Kaliningrad” conducted a seminar for the pupils of senior school. The leaflets were passed to the seminar participants and the lecture on waste management system issues was presented.
